jcarrey060511_03_230.jpgJust days after Jenny McCarthy made comments about Jim Carrey turning his back on her 10-year-old autistic son Evan, the 50-year-old actor delivered a heartfelt response.

"I will always do what I believe is in the best interest of Evan's well being," Carrey said in a statement released today. "It's unfortunate that Evan's privacy is not being considered. I love Evan very much and will miss him always."

The Mr. Popper's Penguins star's reply comes after his ex Jenny McCarthy went on Howard Stern's radio show on Monday when she criticized him for his lack of concern.

“I’ve tried to ask [Jim] numerous times” to see Evan, “because my son still asks,” the Love in the Wild said despite not directly reaching out to him.

Carrey and McCarthy called it quits in April 2010 after dating for more than five years.
